Black Ops II will be on the current gen as well. People do complain a lot about the graphics but I always value gameplay over them, but having nice graphics is a bonus.
I think Halo Reach looks improved over Halo 3, but it's not a huge leap at all. The current systems are fully tapped and the best you will see on the current gen, IMO, is Crysis 2. There's only so far a console can go graphics wise, and the next gen is sure to be a big improvement. I only hope it will be on par with some PC's graphics.
I think everyone bullies COD because well, almost everything is recycled, the games really aren't that good, and Activision is just money grabbing with the name. Hardly any effort is put into the games anymore. Really the COD series is kinda blerg at times to me. MW3 is the worst in the series, COD4 is the best (but the servers for PS3 are messed up), and BLOPS is second best, MW2 being good but not great, and WaW being total poo. I really hated WaW, but this was Treyarchs first adventure into the current COD formula.
COD does have the tightest controls for any FPS game, so I will agree, but I prefer the slightly sluggish feels of games like BF3 and Killzone 3. I think the added "weight" to the controls makes the game feel more involving. I just find it more rewarding in BF3 to blast some one away, hearing the guns roar, the whole game play experience it better to me.
Back to BLOPSII. I loved BLOPS a lot, so I am hoping for a big improvement to Treyarchs formula. We'll never get a good MW game again, so my money is on BLOPSII. They did everything right that Infinity Ward has done wrong with MW2 and MW3.

People b*tch and complain way too much, like graphics make a damn game.
What's funny is that Halo still looks like Halo 3, Gears of War 3 still looks like GoW, console version Battlefield 3 still looks like the first Bad Company, etc. Graphics for specific FPS/TPS series haven't changed practically the entire life of current gen consoles. CoD just gets hated on because it's so popular. Everyone loves picking on the popular kid.
Don't get me wrong I hated MW3, but graphics ain't the issue.
No other FPS plays as fluid and as tight as CoD, and that's what counts the most: the GAMEPLAY.
